Is the Meltdown(CVE-2017-5754) & Spectre(CVE-2017-5753&CVE-2017-2715) impact to Brocade SAN switches?

Hello guys.

 

Now a days, so many customer asked about the Meltdown & Spectre vulnerability.

 

Are these vulnerabilitis impact to Brocade SAN switches?

 

Already I know that the Brocade ASIC is based the PowerPC not from Intel, but I cannot find any documents for this vulnerability from Brocade.

 

So I have two questions.

 

1. Are Brocade SAN switches impacted the Meltdown & Spectre?

2. If not, where can I find the documents from Brocade?

Hello,

 

There are some investigations ongoing into these CVEs already. My understanding is that the affected CPUs are not used within FOS switches or can't be impacted.

Document location concerning security is:

The document is updated regulary with latest investigations.
